Healthy Cooking and MyPlate 101

MyPlate101: Understanding Proper Nutrition

Food is your body’s fuel. You can’t live without it. The key is to give your body enough nutrients and energy without eating too much.

Do's and don'ts include: HealthyHolidayEating

  • Don’t skip meals. This often leads to overeating later on. It’s best to spread your eating throughout the day.
  • Eat a variety of foods, and include less fat and more fiber.
  • If you find yourself eating when you’re not hungry, ask yourself why. Many of us eat when we’re bored, stressed, or just to be polite. Listen to your body. If you’re not hungry, get busy doing something else instead of eating.
  • Eat slower, shooting for 20 to 30 minutes for each meal. It takes 20 minutes for your stomach to tell your brain that it’s full. Slow eaters tend to eat less and are still satisfied, while fast eaters may tend to overeat. 
  • Pay attention to what you eat. Don’t read or watch TV during your meal.

In MyPlate 101, participants gain a better understanding of proper nutrition by learning how to read food labels, and choosing healthier options when preparing and eating a meal. Spectrum Health Lakeland Registered Nurses and Dietitians team up to help you make good choices when it comes to selecting portion sizes & making a "great plate."   

Healthy Cooking is designed to educate participants on how and why to cook healthy meals. The class is led by a Registered Dietitian, who will also provide cooking demonstrations.
